The Wedding Present
Auburn, AL- As one might expect, quarterback talk dominates all preseason football discussions and 2017 was no different for the Auburn Tigers. Jarrett Stidham was all the rage from the second he announced his transfer to the Plains from Junior College back in December. Heralded as a messiah for the Tigers football program, Stidham came out on Saturday night to the roaring adulation of 87,451 who put those unfair expectations on him and looked….fine.
Fleet Foxes’ Crack-up begins in isolation. Frontman Robin Pecknold opens the record whispering, “I am all that I need” accompanied only by a similarly hushed guitar. A minute later, Pecknold emerges from the cave and joins his bandmates in a surging, explosive musical return. Kendrick’s “DNA” be damned, “I Am All That I Need / Arroyo Secco / Thumbprint Scar” is the best drop so far of 2017.
Auburn's new president, Dr. Leath, visits the WEGL studio to take a tour and get to know the student staff. Leath officially becomes the president on June 19th. Listen below to hear Dr. Leath talk about his plans for Auburn.
Auburn, Ala.- In a season that has largely been about getting run support for their excellent pitching staff, the Auburn Softball team got the bats going in a big way this weekend at the Auburn Regional in the NCAA Tournament. Amassing a combined 23 runs and 40 hits over three games, compared to the 5 runs and 13 hits for opponents East Tennessee State and California, senior third baseman Kasey Cooper said it best, commenting “That’s a statement” after the regional title was secured. The Tigers advanced to their third consecutive Super Regional (to be hosted this weekend at Jane B. Moore Field) after welcoming ETSU to their first ever tournament appearance with an 11-0 hospital job Friday afternoon, followed by a nerve wracking game on Saturday against the Golden Bears.
PWR BTTM’s rapid rise, from the New York DIY scene, to having one of 2017’s most anticipated indie punk records, is a surge that only seems possible in the last decade. At first glance or listen, PWR BTTM is clearly a queer band. The two band members, Ben Hopkins and Liv Bruce, who identify as queer and non-binary respectively, perform in drag and fabulously grotesque glittered faces. Sharing lead vocals, guitar, and drums, the duo’s lyrics concern LGBTQ+ life earnestly and intimately.
AUBURN, AL (WEGL) - It’s that time of year where the NBA gives out their awards to recognize the best players at their craft. This year, the NBA is hosting their first ever awards show June 26th at Basketball City at Pier 36 in Manhattan. This year is more intriguing than most, especially the MVP race, as the landscape on the NBA is shifting. In this breakdown, I will name my picks for NBA Most Valuable Player, Most Improved Player, Sixth Man of the Year, Rookie of the Year and Coach of the Year as well as runner-ups for each award.
Second only to this Post-Modern Analysis of Waluigi being the logical end-game of capitalism, the manic ramblings of musician John Maus are perhaps the strangest reads I’ve found online. Claims of the homoeroticism of Nintendo’s anti-hero are enough to tweak even the most disillusioned collegiate drone. And these sorts of things are nice—a trivial escape from reality.
Without a doubt, The Lie Within Callie's debut EP proves that frontwoman and primary songwriter Callie Wilson is no stranger to dulcet tones, rich songwriting, and (if the lyrics are any indication) young adult love in all its beauty and ugliness. "It's the book of hypocrisy," Callie sings in the chorus of the eponymous opening track, and she's "had ever page read to [her]."
Infinite Worlds is quite the fitting name for Laetitia Tamko’s debut album as Vagabon. It’s filled with many little wonders for the listener to discover, as Tamko uses her songwriting talents to carve out her own landscape in the world of indie rock. These worlds are certainly worth exploring, as Tamko lays bare her ruminations and accentuates them with deep song structures and spell-binding performances. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a debut as emotionally resonant and stunning as this. As such, she’s created one of the most accomplished debuts in recent memory, staking her claim as one of indie rock’s promising new voices.
“How did I get here?/ Am I ever gonna get back?” asks Conor O’Brien, subtly addressing just how much he has risked—emotionally and professionally— with his new album, Darling Arithmetic, a significant and brave move for the artist to have made.
